How to Prune Fruit Trees, Twentieth
While the act of pruning is simple enough, knowing where and when to prune can confound even experienced gardeners. For more than half a century, Robert Sanford Martin's How to Prune Fruit Trees has been the go-to guide for pruners of all levels of expertise. As one reviewer noted, "This book simplifies what other books complicate. It has a small amount of text paired with line drawings that help break pruning tasks down into something you can easily understand." Martin has judiciously pruned his words to make his advice as clear and simple as possible. His guidance in the art of cutting back and thinning out has been responsible for the preservation of countless healthy trees and orchards. Maximize your fruit production-whether you are growing apples, almonds, plums, pomegranates, or any of over 40 varieties of fruit trees discussed in this book-by making the right cut every time.In this enhanced edition, additional information from H. H. Thomas's Pruning Made Easy explores the treatment of roots, side shoots, sub-laterals, standards, cordon trees, and other aspects of plant care. Well illustrated and clear, this book will become your indispensable guide for year-round pruning success and should have a place in the library of both seasoned and amateur gardeners.

10 Seeds Dwarf Cherry Tree Self-Fertile Fruit Tree
Germination: Seeds require a period of cold stratification to break their dormancy and jump-start the germination process. Normally, the seeds receive this stratification as they are left to overwinter out of doors. Because your forced-germination process is on a schedule that differs from the natural cycle, you must re-create the chilling period. Wrap the seeds in a moist paper towel, place them in a plastic bag, and seal the bag shut. Store the seeds in a 34- to 40-degree Fahrenheit refrigerator for 60 to 90 days. Grows well in a large flower pot or patio container. It takes up little space but provides great benefits. Place the Dwarf Cherry in a sheltered, sunny spot. SHOWY-A great cherry to eat fresh from the tree. Masses of rich, dark, juicy fruits. FRUITS-The fruit are juicy with a good flavor and are prolific especially when grown in a sheltered position. EASY TO GROW-Beautiful white flowers will be produced from April and the fruits will be ready for picking from late July.
